Here we go again

I came off the new meds. I didn’t like how I wasn’t in control of anything.

Coming off was tough, almost as tough as getting on them in the first place. But I’m three weeks free and I’m feeling good about my decision and just about managing the pain. Well, I’m not but I’ll get there.

My doctor wants me to go back onto my old pain meds and I desperately want to agree but there was this teeny-tiny side effect which wasn’t ideal and I’m struggling with the need for pain management versus the need to feel positive nerve sensations.

In the meantime bit of a bonus … I’ve lost 6 pounds. I will beat this hiccup.
